An Inclusive Valentine's Day Date

Posted by Papa Sez | Sunday, February 13, 2011

Valentine's Day is usually associated with romantic love and dates involving lovers. As a parent, I just want to share our experience last Valentine's Day when our two school-age kids came up with an idea to surprise us with a Valentine's Day breakfast party and involved their three yayas in the preparation.

They prepared simple decorations and lovely cards together, each with its own unique design, and presented to us assembled like this.

It was a very thoughtful and special group activity that made the 13th Valentine's Day of Mama Sez and me more extraordinary knowing that our kids can pull off such a production in such a young age.

When the flowers for Mama Sez was delivered, all I had to do was to sit back and drink my tea and enjoy the moment.

It was indeed a great surprise breakfast party and a Valentine's Day to remember.

P.S.  While the day went on as an inclusive Valentine's date and being a Sunday helped considerably in the execution of the concept, the afternoon and evening was for the parents to go out and have an exclusive time away from parenting responsibilities.

About Us (circa 2009)

Our journey led us to this place. A little more than 10 years ago we began our journey as husband and wife. Three years later, we found ourselves with two bundles of joy- a daughter and then a son. They're the children we've dreamed of having.

About five years since the birth of our son, an unexpected gift came- a younger brother to our school-age kids. And soon enough, a baby girl arrived to round the family membership.

Brave was a term used by a friend to describe us. Challenging... and loving it -- yeah, this journey is not for the faint of heart.
